    Works fine,it's pretty simple and could do with some refinement in the future to make the UI a little nicer and add additional features such as an API so those of us with a larger catalogue can setup automated order processing (for licenses etc). PayPal do also take a fee on top of the CubeCart fee.

    Your database and dB user names and passwords will almost certainly be different on your new hosting and you need to update the /includes/global.ini.php file with the new values Ian

    Seems to have levelled off the cache at around 35,000 objects at the moment, will keep an eye and report back later.

    Try this: In includes/ckeditor/config.js, at the bottom, find: config.allowedContent = true; }; Change to: config.allowedContent = true; config.coreStyles_italic = {element : 'em'}; config.extraAllowedContent = 'i[*]{*}(*)'; }; CKEDITOR.dtd.$removeEmpty = '{i: 0}'; The same added statements can be used for other HTML tags used in unorthodox ways.

    Email routing will automatically be set to "Automatic" or sometimes "Local Mail Exchanger" which in 99.99% of cases will be the same thing. You only need to set it to Remote if you are using external MX records pointing away from your hosting company which is effectively what Godaddy are forcing you to do by closing email ports. Some people choose to use gmail or other email service providers, but why should you have to ? Disabling php mail() is standard practice now for security reasons (WHM built in security advisor flags this as a high security risk if it is enabled !) and SMTP should always be used and configured to use SSL / TLS. Email sent via SMTP is much more secure, more likely to be delivered and not rejected or put into spam and isnt complicated to use. So much so, I would recommend that php mail() is removed as an option in CubeCart as it is very likely to disappear as an option in the near future Ian

    For anyone that uses git with CubeCart (or any other packages for that matter), cPanel have been adding a huge amount of functionality which will be included in V68 - see https://features.cpanel.net/topic/allow-users-to-install-websites-from-version-control V68 is already in Edge release status so most people will not have access to it yet, but V68 should be into general release in a few months (V66 has just been released in the last week) Ian

    This is the first time using this cart. Like it a lot, easy to work with and the CMS feature is excellent, my previous cart didn't have that. Didn't customize too much but happy with the way it came out. Don's Vintage Audio Feedback welcome!

    The 'top menu' is the "Navigation" bar (or sometimes "Shop by Category" box). The menu is built from all the categories (enabled and unhidden) there are. There are also three special items: Home, Sale Items, and Gift Certificates. To add any other links to this group would require editing the skin template "box.navigation.php".

    Welcome garitoml! Glad to see you made it to the forums. In the Foundation skin file content.product.php, find these two statements near lines 140 and 149: 140: <dl class="tabs" data-tab data-options="deep_linking:true; scroll_to_content:false"> 149: <div class="tabs-content"> What we will do is apply a CSS style to make them disappear: style="display:none;" 140: <dl class="tabs" data-tab data-options="deep_linking:true; scroll_to_content:false" style="display:none;"> 149: <div class="tabs-content" style="display:none;"> You may need to clear the skin cache after having edits to the skin file: admin, Maintenance, Rebuild tab, Clear Cache. As an aside, I ran a CC3 store that sold conference registrations. I know what you're involved with in getting CubeCart to do this.

    In CubeCart's administration backend, on the left navigation panel, click Email Templates. The Email Contents tab is a list of all the main contents of CubeCart's emails - click the flag of the language you wish to edit. The Email Templates tab is a list of the email's overall common content - click the Edit icon of Default Emails. On the page that is now shown, click the HTML Content tab. (Do Not Edit Anything. Possible bug here.) Hover the mouse over the blue squares to see a tooltip as to what protected content is here.

    The solution is going to involve having CubeCart make a decision on how to deal with the HomePage document. This before CubeCart sends the finished page to the browser so as to not include the <ul class="bxslider"> block of code. By removing this block of code, the <img> tags will not be present and so the total time to finally display the page will be lessened. On the other hand, if you just want to hide it on a mobile skin, we can create a simple CSS rule: .bxslider { display:none;} To hide it on a responsive screen: The html in the document would be: <ul class="show-for-medium-up bxslider"> Getting back to not including it, we need a version of CubeCart that includes the ability to parse Smarty tags. In admin, Documents, click the edit icon for any document. On the General tab, check for the presence of the "Parse Smarty Tags" checkbox.

    To follow up on this, I contacted FastComet support and spent a little time trying to figure out the problem, and looked at a few other shopping carts... But aside from the problem I was having I did like CubeCart so decided to just download CubeCart 6.2.4 and install a new Database... The new version appears to be working perfectly! So if you have a similar problem a reinstall may be a quick and simple solution. Regards, Dave

    CubeCart will create and cache a skin-based rendering of the category tree, then make that "cameo" available to box.navigation.php in $CATEGORIES. The "pro" of this is to expend just once what could be a time-intensive task in building the tree. The "con" is that (at least for some versions of CubeCart) the URLs have the host address of the store when the tree was built. (Thus, should the web address change, the links do not work anymore.) By adding {debug} to the end of the main.php template, you should see the $CATEGORIES variable in the left pane of the Smarty popup.

    One final experiment before we take a different approach: Log out of admin. Log out of the storefront. Clear the cookies to your site (or use a different browser or computer). Change those values in global.inc.php to be the latest file and folder names. Save the file. Go to the page www.store.com/admin.php. Attempt to log in.

    There is this: https://github.com/cubecart/v6/issues/1427 which could be enhanced to include the case where there is just one product in the listing of a category and there are no child categories. (I'll add this to my to-do list.)

    Provided that the digital file is publically accessible, in admin, Add/Edit Product, Digital tab, Custom File Path section, you may enter either a direct path to a folder on CubeCart's server, or a Full Web Address that points to anywhere on the Internet. If your AWS repository requires a login, that may pose an obstacle unless you know how to overcome it.

    While it is faster to upload the zip file and then extract after it has completed, you then need to add the additional steps of ensuring that (if you already have a renamed /admin_xxxxxx directory and admin_yyyyyy.php file), these need to be renamed as you will have a /admin directory and admin.php file from the zip extract and you will end up with multiple copies of both and mixed versions of files as so many on here have done. You also of course still need to run the /setup AFTER completing the rename Ian

    CC620 has adopted the attitude that clearing the cache as often as all prior versions of CC5/6 was doing was incredibly aggressive. Now, the admin is to make all changes - adding inventory, creating categories, editing documents, etc, etc - then click the "Clear Cache" button (should now be lit) seen at the upper-right corner of the admin page. The cache holds SQL queries and their results to lessen the load on shared database servers. If you are not concerned about the load on the database while setting up your store, then in admin, Store Settings, Advanced tab, switch off Caching.

    Please note that the template rendering engine (Smarty) builds the page before the web browser gets it. Putting HTML comment tags around the Smarty commands does not stop Smarty from replacing those {commands-in-braces} with the intended content. That intended content could also have HTML comment tags. That results in nested comment tags. Look for those statements in the template as mentioned earlier, but change them to look like this: {* include file='templates/box.newsletter.php' *} and {* include file='templates/box.popular.php' *} The brace-asterisk-space sequence is Smarty's comment tag. Thus, the content will not appear in the rendered page sent out to the browser.

    Welcome Carlos Martins! Glad to see you made it to the forums. Only two or three database columns store a date as a SQL DATE/TIME value. The other 'time'-related columns are "UNIX timestamps" - the number of seconds since Jan1,1970. There are PHP functions that take this number, and a "pattern", as arguments, and give back a phrase. The phrase can be 'fuzzy' (Yesterday, two weeks ago, etc) or absolute (4 Feb, 2018).

    I decided to go slightly further. Added - as a zone then updated the templates to say something like this. <input type="hidden" name="billing[state]" id="state-list" value="-" /> Seems to work.

    @twistedsymphony - if you have any questions, please feel free to ask - a ticket via our website is likely to get seen quicker but a reply on here or a PM is fine @jka - thanks for the vote of confidence in the plugin and for buying it. As you discovered, the plugin calculates tax and shipping using what is already configured within your store. In terms of the customer seeing the order, yes they need to login and then it will appear on their Account | Order History page with an option to Complete Payment. An option to send the customer an email at the point when the admin user has created it would be an option that could be added - it would need a new template plus the ability to select on an order by order basis whether this email should be sent. With regard to the credit balance issue - I have opened a support ticket for you as will need to understand from you in more detail what you are doing and what the problem is Ian

    Hover your mouse over the Edit button. Your browser will show the URL that will be sent when clicked. Note the address_id value. Back at the admin list of Zones, hover your mouse cursor over the Delete icon for 'Greater London'. Note the id value (maybe 469?). Using an external database utility, look in CubeCart_addressbook. Find the record that has that value as the address_id. Compare the database addressbook record 'state' column value with the 'Greater London' id value. They should match. One one point long ago in time, the 'state' column held the actual name of the state/county/province. That column still can hold actual names, but CubeCart now uses ID numbers.

    Welcome Michal Kubacki! Glad to see you made it to the forums. When you received that error banner, you should have been taken to a screen for the customer to edit their address: ?_a=addressbook&action=edit&address_id=9 (or some number) CubeCart wants to create an array of all possible state/county and country terms that will be used by other processes (shipping, payment, etc). This happens at User->formatAddress(). This error is triggered when the state/county cannot be found in the CubeCart_geo_zone database table. In CubeCart's admin, Countries/Zones, Zones tab, page down to the country section where the suspect address is located, then look for the correct spelling of the County.

    How UPS decides what to charge for its shipping services are not precisely known. I suppose generally the rate quoted involves weight and distance. You say "it worked", but you didn't say which option you chose: supress estimates until actual delivery address known, or show estimates based on shipping the package back to your store's physical location (which, of course, would be way off compared to shipping across the country). Also, the rates quoted would (presumably) be the same as if you carried the package into a UPS store. This is opposed to having a UPS merchant shipping account, and through that account, enjoy "negotiated rates". Cubecart's UPS module is not coded to communicate for negotiated rates.

    its caused by sessions.gc_maxliftime, and has been the bane of my life for getting on 2 years, until Al and I found it. session.gc_maxlifetime This value (default 1440 seconds (20 minutes)) defines how long an unused PHP session will be kept alive. For example: A user logs in, browses through your application or web site, for hours, for days. No problem. As long as the time between his clicks never exceed 1440 seconds.

    Pretty easy. go to Product Options and create a new group, call it Roast Type Then also in product options, go to attributes and create a new style of roast - call it light roast, assign it to Roast Type with the drop down. Click the little green plus icon and then create your next style (medium), again, click the plus, create another (Heavy), or what ever styles roasts come as. Click save Create your base item - coffeee beans. When coffee beans has been created, you can assign any number of the above attributes to the product, and assign either a final price or an additional price. eg, Beans are £5.00 Light roast can then be either an additional $0.50 or a full total of $5.50 depending on which tick box you use. Medium roast then be either an additional $0.70 or a full total of $5.70 Heavy roast can be either an additional $1.00 or a full total of $6.00 If you then wanted to do something similar with size of beans, you could create a new attribute called size. see my example below of a product with multiple options. Note how my 1000 and 10000 options are absolute price. This is the final price, and not an additional price.

    I found the issue... whilst I had enabled the php-gd extension in my php.ini file, I did not actually have the php-gd package installed. As an Arch Linux user, this is fixed with.. #pacman -S php-gd #systemctl restart httpd All Done! I've reported two issues in this one thread, which is rather silly. I'll [Resolve] this one and open a fresh one for the other issue.

    A couple of questions: Are you using AIOS? Do you have a country or region set up in AIOS for the countries you ship too? Are you running the following CC6.1.8 with Skin Foundation and AIOS. + various plugins. ie Card capture+paypal express I may not be able to help for here on, but the answers will help others more knowledgeable.

    I would suggest that you ask @havenswift-hosting for help, as I was hoping it was some simple setting that had been messed up on upgrading.

    The "Shop by Category" reference is the default title of the sidebox of nav links on skins designed for CC5 (which still work with CC6). It is not a "file", per se. You can see this in the MarketPlace. The Foundation skin does not use a title for the top menu bar. A 'title' would be what you see in the "Best Sellers" box, or "Featured Product" box. CubeCart uses a template rendering engine that will cache compiled templates - needing only then to fill in the variables with values. When making edits to templates, you will need to clear the cache of already compiled templates. One way to do this is in admin, Maintenance, Rebuild tab, check Clear cache, click Submit. Another way is to make the browser request this URL: www.store.com/index.php?debug-cache-clear=true

    We have had reports from some clients about this happening and seems to be affecting some clients only and not others, even those on the same server and this is across multiple different servers as well - Ihave also heard from other store owners that aren't hosted with us about similar problems starting 1 1/2 to 2 days ago indicating that it is a PayPal issue. Dont ever believe PayPal when they say there are no problems, they very often have problems and deny all knowledge - they had massive DNS routine issues just before Xmas which were confirmed by independent testing tools and yet they claimed all systems were working perfectly. I don't do PayPal at all as dislike them (although understand for many store owners that they are easy to setup and use) and so don't have direct experience but user should check your IPN settings in your PayPal account (we have had at last two users where IPN appears to have switched off) and then also look at IPN transactions and the following URL is provided on the CubeCart support website https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/ipn/integration-guide/IPNOperations/ Ian

    In a previous life, I sent emailed newsletters to a certain constituency. They were sent from an in-house server instead of a third-party (constant contact, mailchimp, etc). I had to engage a throttle for AOL that was ridiculously tight. With AOL, it is not so much a domain getting blacklisted*, as it is exceeding their rate threshold from the same IP. (AOL people have use of a "This is JUNK/SPAM" button. They tend to use that button instead of appropriately moving it to their trash folder - that is, delete. Thus, the IP and/or domain gets blacklisted - for 24 hours - because of AOL user error.)
